GwynethJones's curator insight, April 26, 7:43 PM

I have to confess, I'm an inconsistant blogger. I don't think I'll ever have the time or the tenacity to blog every Tuseday and Sunday...or twice a week.

 

Sometimes I only blog once a month, sometimes twice, or even 4 times a month, but it's not the frequency that makes a blog successful, it's the information shared and the authentiicty of the message.

 

I really respect @rmbyrne  SO much for his excellent and frequent advice!

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, April 19, 1:48 PM
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short, but thought-provoking piece by Terry Heick of TeachThought. Of course, in philosophical terms, these secrets work for anyone in any profession but I think it is especially important for teachers in the day & age of constant change. For media specialists, this couldn't be a more important framework of the dispositions that make one a truly indispensable member of the school community. Enjoy!

Adding value: Principals’ perceptions of the role of the teacher-librarian | QUT ePrints

This paper reports on a study into principals’ perceptions of the role of the teacher-librarian. Nine principals in Australia were interviewed about the role of the teacher-librarian and library in their school. The findings indicated a range of ways in which the teacher-librarian adds value to the school, including in their role as teacher, providing the principal with a broad perspective on the workings of the school, providing advice and ideas, and providing leadership in the use of information and communications technology (ICT) at the school. It also identified a number of personal qualities valued by principals.
